Uhuru’s Men Threatened to Kill Me – Sonko Reveals
Sonko disclosed this following last week’s drama when he was allegedly denied his good conduct certificate, which was part of the documents he needed in order to submit his nomination papers for the Nairobi Gubernatorial seat.
“They are now intimidating me and using State organs to deny me vital documents needed for clearance in order to vie. A powerful Cabinet Secretary even threatened to assassinate me,” Sonko claimed.
The flamboyant senator has been at loggerheads with his contender Peter Kenneth, who is also in Jubilee Party and has expressed interest in the Nairobi’s top seat.
Sonko vowed never to stand down for Mr Kenneth highlighting that their disputes were personal adding that he would move out of Jubilee if push comes to shove.
“I was voted Senator by 800,000 voters. These people are the ones who will nominate me. But if Jubilee pushes me to the wall. I will use another alternative vehicle,” the Senator noted.
He further highlighted that it was unfair for the Government to use his past criminal records to block him from vying.
"I don’t want my criminal past 20 years ago to influence my future. I have no criminal case pending in court now. Yet the DCI is using a case in which I stood surety for the Mombasa Republican Council leadership in Coast to deny me the certificate,” Sonko said before he received his good conduct certificate.
